lyrics

I HAD WHEELS
Josh Hartman / Darden Smith / Jay Clementi

I was a skinny Mohawk punk
Flying on jack and coke and junk
Heaven was just an empty pool
Loved the danger loved the girls
Knew that I could wrestle down the world
Everytime I headed down to Santa Cruz

I had wheels
Click clacking down the sidewalk
I had wheels
If only that board could talk

I shaved my Mohawk nice and clean
On the day I turned 19
Put on a different uniform
Then my boots were on the ground
A dirty street in a foreign town
I was wishing through a Desert Storm

I had wheels
Click clacking on the sidewalk
I had wheels
My Chuck Taylor’s making them talk

How cool would that be
Nobody shooting at me
Skating under those cross sabers
Wind at my back
My boys at my side we could ride forever

I had wheels
Click clacking on the sidewalk
I had Wheels
My Chuck Taylor’s making them talk
I had wheels
If only that board could talk
I had wheels
